The Ole Miss football program has been under fire all season long from NCAA santctions to the dramatic exit of then head coach Hugh Freeze. This has made it extra hard to keep commits and now even returning players.
The Rebels' star quarterback Shea Patterson announced Monday he is jumping ship and transferring to the University of Michigan to play under head coach Jim Harbaugh.
The former No. 1 quarterback recruit in the country threw for 2,259 yards and 17 touchdowns in seven games this past fall before ending his season early with a leg injury in late October.
Patterson made the announcement via Twitter and could be eligible to play for the Wolverines as early as next fall due to the NCAA sanctions his old program is facing.
